What to pack for your trip to Glacier National Park
Expect warm days and chilly nights in the lower altitudes of Glacier National Park. Snow is possible year-round in the higher elevations so bring lots of layers if you plan to hike in these areas. Be prepared for afternoon storms and bright sunshine during the day. In addition to your usual active vacation attire, be sure to bring:
- Insect repellent
- Rain jacket
- Synthetic layers
- Hiking boots and/or comfortable shoes
- Extra socks
- Refillable water bottles
- Bear Spray* (available for purchase at all Glacier National Park Lodge retail locations)
*NOTE: Bear spray is considered a weapon and cannot be brought onto commercial flights. Bear spray is available for purchase at all Glacier National Park Lodge retail locations. A recycling program is also available to guests to safely dispose of their bear spray after their trip.
Laundry services are available at Swiftcurrent Motor Inn.
